Capital University and its programs are recognized for their excellence by a number of accrediting bodies, including:
For 91 years, Capital has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and it’s seeking to reaffirm that accreditation for another decade.
In anticipation of an on-site visit from the Higher Learning Commission October 29-31, 2012 Capital University has made public a report on the findings of the most extensive, data-informed and collaborative examination of the fulfillment of its mission in nearly a decade.
The site visit is one of five steps institutions must complete to fulfill the HLC’s Program to Evaluate and Advance Quality, the method by which Capital maintains its status as an HLC-accredited institution. Completing the two-year self-study and reporting on the findings was the first of those five steps. All of this demonstrates the Capital’s continuous improvement and compliance with the commission’s criteria for accreditation.
